      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  4. I had this question awhile back, and posed it to gogetsll, this was their responce Dear Tim,at this moment yes, we are pending on own CA registration.Dead business? :))) Lets Encrypt has 0,07% of the market, it is nothing. Millions of SSL issued daily by all others.http://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/ssl_certificate/allWe see strong increase in sales as well as all others.Lets Encrypt offers only Domain validation single domain certs, while most income is from Wildcards, Multi-Domains and OV/EV certs.Lets Encrypt issues SSL for 90-days only, Google and others do not give such trust to it comparing to 1-2-3 years certs.Lets Encrypt just got those customers who never had even 4$ to pay for SSL.Best wishes,Evgeny RuhmanGGSSL Level III Engineer
  5. I did just this, found a 40 port used unit on fleabay for $800, it runs my storage network for Ceph, then you can usually find HP Dual (Melenox) 10GbE PCIe cards for ~$50-75 and transceivers for ~$20-30 (service unsupported-transceiver to use non-cisco branded) and patch cables for $2-3
  6. It's a tax loophole thing, pipe tobacco is taxed lower than rolling tobacco. So most is sold as dual purpose to avoid the high cigarette tax. I've heard the best seeds are imported from England, but again, in the US, you are allowed to grow for yourself, but the minute you sell it, here comes the taxman.
  7. Definitely cheaper, I figure it is about 80c a pack, but cleaner is debatable. I am able to buy locally 1lb of not the worst tobacco and 3 boxes of tube for $18, makes about 600 smokes, and I am able to knock out a few packs in the time it takes to watch a 1/2 hour show. For those doing math, I know it says 60c, but factor in the $60-80 over 2-3 years for the roller costs. If you mean cleaner as in less additives, well that is the debatable part. I don't know for sure one way or the other, a friend recently quit rolling and went back to buying store bought smokes saying the ones he rolled made him hack more.
  8. I know we were not allowed to smoke the first 10 days of basic training, now 35 years later, I really regret not staying quit
  9. I started with $400 10 years ago next month, so you have not accomplished much yet. This business rolls with the same cycles as the general world economies. Let me know what you are doing after the next recession.
  10. Your age is starting to rot your brain ;) I'd love to make some use of Solar, heat would be my #1 desire in the winter, even though it is ~60 this week, baseboard heat is not cheap, but as a renter, and walking distance to the colo, I'll stay put.
  11. Your deep cells look like they are swelling, but could easily be an optical delusion.
  12. Does it? Or does the fault rest with the clients? Companies are budgeting what the client is willing to pay. Not everyone is willing to pay $1k/mo per cabinet in a properly built facility, and when the customer cuts corners on cost and does suffer the eventual failure, why is the DC to blame for giving the customer what they wanted? Also, as the story goes, shit happens ;)
  13. As my golden rule, if you don't have root, don't use it. I host my own DNS, cPanel DNSONLY and PowerDNS, all are diverse and if there is a problem, I have nobody but myself to blame and can fix the issue in minutes, when there is one. very rare I have DNS issues, and when my users have issues, I can fix their problem instead of relying on some 3rd party. The only thing I rely on 3rd parties for is SSL certs and domain registration

    It was the best looking cover, but I am just trolling anyway.
